Cooking Time

30 Minutes - 1 Hour

  • Milk - 2 cups
  • Rice (or any unpolished rice) - 1/4 cup
  • Jaggery - 1.5 tablespoons
  • Mixed nuts (almonds, cashews, pistachios) - 2 tablespoons (chopped)
  • Cardamom powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • A pinch of saffron strands (Optional for added flavor)
  • Ghee (clarified butter) - 1 tablespoon
  • This version of kheer made with rice and natural sweeteners offers the goodness of whole grains and nuts, making it a guilt-free treat that you can enjoy as a special offering to Lord Ganesha. Savor the creamy and aromatic flavors of this nourishing dessert and seek blessings from Lord Ganesha for good health and prosperity.


    • Wash the rice thoroughly and soak it in water for about 30 minutes. Drain the water and set the rice aside.
    • In a saucepan, bring the milk to a boil over medium heat.
    • Add the soaked rice to the milk and let it simmer on low heat, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
    • Once the rice is fully cooked and the milk has thickened to a creamy consistency, add jaggery or honey.
    • Stir well until it dissolves and adjust sweetness according to your preference.
    • Add chopped nuts, cardamom powder, and saffron strands (if using). Stir well to infuse the flavors.
    • For added richness and flavor, you can add a tablespoon of ghee or coconut oil and mix well (optional).
    • Simmer the kheer for a few more minutes until it reaches the desired consistency. If it thickens too much, you can add a little more milk to adjust.
    • Turn off the heat and let the kheer cool down to a warm or chilled temperature.
